Samsung Galaxy S5 with QHD display, Snapdragon 805 CPU, 3GB RAM shows up in Hong Kong pricing database


If the recent leaks from Apple are doing a great job with confusing you about the upcoming iPhone's varieties and ship dates, just check out what's going on with Samsung and the elusive Galaxy S5 Prime. Not long ago, it was regarded by Samsung's CEO of mobile, J.K. Shin himself as complete nonsense, yet here we are, staring at this listing from a Hong Kong pricing database. What looks like the good and not-so-old Galaxy S5 at first glance is named “SM-G906S” - a model name that we've already spotted in a benchmark, an Indian import-export website, a screenshot, and some other occasions.

The phone is complemented by a familiar, mouth-watering set of specs - QHD display (2560x1440), Snapdragon 805 CPU, 3GB RAM, 16MP camera, and a yet unheard of Android 4.4.3 KitKat. Sadly or not, there are no hints of metal to be found, aside from the side frame, which casts a chrome sheen. Then again, product images like this tend to look quite artificial, so we don't trust them for deducing more subtle details like this. The phone is priced at a $647 US (5,020 Hong Kong dollars), which doesn't seem too unrealistic.

Regardless, it is an increasingly persistent rumor now that Samsung intends to counter the LG G3's impending announcement by introducing a more powerful version of the Galaxy S5 soon after. However, there's the possibility that this alleged spec-warrior will remain a South Korean exclusive for a while. We'll probably learn what's about to happen with the Galaxy S4 soon after the LG G3's announcement, and perhaps a myriad of similar leaks later.
